Before you begin, back up your data. The ScrumWorks Pro upgrade procedure modifies your existing MySQL database. After the upgrade starts, the database will no longer work correctly with the older version of ScrumWorks Pro.
Please refer to the backup documentation.
Existing customers can obtain the latest stable version of ScrumWorks Pro Linux / MySQL distribution from the ScrumWorks Pro download web site. Note, the same binaries are used for both upgrades and fresh installations.
The existing ScrumWorks Pro service must be shutdown prior to running the setup program in the next step. This is done one of two ways, depending on whether you've configured ScrumWorks Pro server to run as a background daemon or a foreground process (started manually via the shell prompt):
# /etc/init.d/scrumworks_init.sh stop
The ScrumWorks Pro server upgrade process requires that you install a parallel instance of ScrumWorks Pro server. Your data is upgraded migration during the installation process automatically; do not manually copy your data files into your new installation.
tar -jxvf scrumworks-pro-[version]-mac_linux.tar.bz2
Run with root privileges:
Follow the prompts to download the required third-party files. These files are necessary for a successful installation of ScrumWorks Pro (your server has no internet access).
After the upgrade is complete, ScrumWorks can be started. If you chose to run as a daemon background process, the server will be started automatically. If you chose to run as a foreground process:
setup.shagain. During the
setup.shscript, indicate whether ScrumWorks Pro starts as a daemon or not.
Note: If you have made changes to the ports that ScrumWorks runs on, please see our port configuration documentation.
Your upgraded ScrumWorks Pro server can be accessed via a web browser once the ScrumWorks Pro starts. It may take a few minutes for the service to start, so please be patient. Once the server is up, open a web browser on the local machine and point to:
